Can anyone please tell me how I get to this location

\Documents and Settings\ user name>\Application Data\\#\user\

I've opened "My Documents" but cannor see settings.

Mine's on the c\ drive.

I click on My Computer > Local Drive C: & there it is.

I don't know if a Search would help, in case yours isn't set up like mine.

Start > Search. Type in Documents and Settings for drive C: (that's if your main drive is 'C'. If not, type in the main drive letter).

Good Luck

Its not under My documents

Use My Computer Epand the C Drive and then expand documents and settings to get to the correct folder.

If yor using XP make sure View hidden files and folders is ticked if Vista or Windows 7 you will need administrator privileges.

Press Windows Key Plus E you will see it in the root list under C:\

Sorry for the delay in replying, I work nights.

I think I've managed to do it and renamed the folder.

As per instructions in the original thread, I've reinstalled OO but at "Unpack" stage a pop up window saying "The same version is installed"

Finally, I've un/reinstalled OO, and it's still corrupted

Any help please?

Try using this to completely remove Open Office before attempting to reinstall.

Hi gent

Thanks for your advice, I uninstalled OO, used CC, then the link above (brother) rebooted the comp, reinstalled OO and yet still it's corrupted, not sure what else I can do.

What error messages are you getting? Exact wording please.
